The problem

The need to revise the pricing strategy and positioning in the online market

The customer (online retailer) wanted a daily overview of all prices of the competitive offers available on the market for an optimal price strategy. Due to the large number of articles offered online, it is very time-consuming for the customer to manually search for all offers.

The solution

A tool, which explores the price market situation internationally across many marketplaces, price comparison sites and online shops and at the same time adjusts its own prices according to individually defined rules

The solution: A tool that ejects an optimized price recommendation. By connecting the re-pricing tool to the merchandise management or shop system, the customer can control the price optimization from the lead system and always keeps the current overview of the market situation.

Before

If, for example, an article on google shopping is opened manually, it takes about 20-30 seconds to see the current situation. Then in the next step you have to consider or calculate how the price should be adjusted. And then follows the transfer into the system.

Afterwards

  • Time expenditure is extremely reduced. With an automated tool, this can be done in a matter of seconds - for thousands of articles simultaneously.
  • Reliability and control over prices regained.

Insights

What had the customer tried before?

Research of all offers by hand. 

Additional challenges at the customer

The comparison of own articles with articles of other manufacturers.

What criteria were important to him?

Technologically: Collection of data from different market places (ebay, amazon, idealo, google shopping) and control of price recalculation with one system.
